Great KC (MO) Lunch Spots

Two fine lunches in two days, in very different settings.
Hooray for Swagger at 85th & Wornall. I can't wait to go back on a Saturday with football on the TV's. The Beef on Weck was a perfect replica of the Buffalo original. Great fries and onion rings, wide selection of beers in a neat and tidy establishment. Don't be put off by the exterior, this is a promising neighborhood hangout.
Today, the Farmhouse at Third & Delaware provided a wonderful Corned Beef & Cabbage ruben and terrific chicken salad. We sat outside & enjoyed the mild August afternoon. If they had a liquor license, a bottle of wine might have kept us there for hours.
Neither place has any pretentions, but both are really trying to add variety to the standard lunch menu.

  1. We had a good lunch at Kansas City Cafe on some hound's rec (I'm sorry to say i can't recall who...) Pork and shrimp burger with a nice tangy sauce and fresh bun, good salad with grilled chicken, fresh iced tea, and quite reasonable.
